It’s the right decision – Ex-Imo Governor, Ihedioha resigns from PDP

Emeka Ihedioha, former governor of Imo State, has resigned from the People’s Democratic Party (PDP).

Ihedioha said that while the decision was tough, he believes it was correct.

He highlighted a disconnect of his values with the party’s current trend.

His resignation letter was submitted to the chairman of his constituency, Mbutu Ward, Aboh Mbaise Local Government Area in Imo State.

Ihedioha expressed his commitment to the progress of democracy and good government in Nigeria despite his decision to leave the party.

Ihedioha, who has been a member of the PDP since its creation in 1998, emphasized his contributions to the party’s growth and evolution, citing its historical dedication to internal reforms and trustworthy leadership both in and out of power.

However, Ihedioha lamented recent developments within the party, stating that it has deviated from its core principles. He voiced concerns over the party’s inability to enact internal reforms, uphold its own regulations, and effectively oppose the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC).

The letter reads, “Since 1998, I have contributed my quota as one of the founding members to the development and transformation of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

“All these years, I have taken pride in the fact that the PDP is a party that will always look inward for internal reforms and provide credible leadership for the people, whether in power or outside power. I have had the benefit of serving and benefiting from the party at various levels.

“Regrettably, in recent times, the party has taken on a path that is at variance with my personal beliefs. Despite my attempt to offer counsel, the party is, sadly, no longer able to carry out internal reforms, enforce its own rules or offer credible opposition to the ruling All Progressives Congress.’

“It is in the light of the foregoing, that I am compelled to offer my resignation from the People’s Democratic Party effective immediately. While the decision was difficult to take, I, however, believe that it is the right one.

“Despite this resignation, I will always be available to offer my services towards the deepening of democracy and good governance in Nigeria.”
